The beginnings of the building activity in Putbus were in Alleestraße. After that, the market square, August-Bebel Strasse and the circus were built on. Most of the houses are more or less well preserved or have already been reconstructed, from the time when the village was founded. The most important buildings here include the Palais Lottum, the former princely court, the pedagogium, the town hall and the theatre. The theater was built between 1819 and 1821 based on a design by W. Steinbach. It offered space for 500 guests. The house was extended and partially rebuilt in the second half of the 19th century and in the years 1952/53. It is the only one left on the island to this day. The Putbusser Theater was the „former meeting place of the fine world“. Some took hours of bus and, in the past, train journeys to attend a performance.
Don’t miss out on a visit – you might even get a seat in the royal box. You can book the tickets in the Kurverwaltung Putbus, at many other advance booking offices on the whole island of Rügen, in the theater itself or on the website of the theatre.
